Pecked to Death By Keychains

Every time I close the lid on my MacBook Pro, running 10.6.2, and open it again, Mail, Cal, and/or Adium will pop up the keychain unlock dialog. Even if they are minimized to the task bar. The unlock dialog squats there, modally, until I oblige it with a password.

"First, make a backup of login.keychain:

cp ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain ~/login.keychain.bak

Then delete it:

rm ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain

the reason to keep a backup is in case you want to restore your saved passwords. This will stop the prompts however."

"At least on Mac OS X through 10.5.x, this is NOT the default behavior.

However, if you are using SSHKeychain or a third-party tool, this may lock the login keychain when the laptop goes to sleep."
